Groupe Beneteau restructures Boat Division

Groupe Beneteau has restructured its Boat division, organising it into three business segments: Sailing (monohulls and multihulls), Dayboating (motorboats from 20 to 40ft for day cruising) and Real Estate on the Water (motoryachts from 40 to 80ft).

The organisation has been carried out with the intention of enabling Groupe Beneteau to continue to pursue its transformation as a multi-specialist player in the boating industry.

The boat builder says the reorganisation will enable it to be as close as possible to the expectations of its customers and a rapidly evolving market.
